Sunday 21 October
 
Over 30 participants joined us to see the film, Monsieur Lazhar, which was introduced by John Polgar who also conducted the lively discussion after the movie.  It was a film that resounded with everyone and had people continue the discussion over refreshments.  Importantly, many people asked when the next film afternoon would be held.  Thank you John, thanks to our catering group for arranging delicious nibbles, and thanks to the rest of the committee who ensured that the afternoon ran smoothly.
 
 

Sunday 24 June  2018

Almost 40 people attended the showing of Crossing Delancey with our Boomers' Film Group on Sunday.  

All those present agreed that the film, ably introduced by Leo Goorevich, was joyful and the kind of film we should show from time to time.  

Discussion continued for some time over light refreshments organised by Susan Levy.  Gwen Harrison, NSTE President, drew the lucky door prizes, the first of which, a can of pickled cucumbers (to honour the movie) was won by Barbara Woolf and the second, the DVD of crossing Delancey, was won by Meira Marks. 
 
Be sure to keep the date free for our next film afternoon on 26 August at 4:00 pm!
